DAY #136

So relieved that the humidity has broken. Took a shower last night and it was so good to feel clean. even after limiting the temperature to warm because of the legs and feet, man, they’re starting to peel, and itch. It almost felt luxurious to sleep on sheets that didn’t feel damp, or sticky.

I’m afraid my chronic condition, donothingitis, has flared up again. I ended up just hanging around the campsite today. Hey, I didn’t go anywhere, period.

Surfing the net, watching TV, and lounging around, are classic symptoms of this condition and I was experiencing all of them. While treatable, the fastest recovery is to just let it run its course.

I did have an incidence last night with a fellow camper. It was around 12:30 am, when I saw (out the window by the bed) what looked to be an LED flashlight coming towards the trailer. Sure enough a knock on the door. I got up from the bed and answered the door. A woman was standing there (flashlight in hand) asking if I could turn down the TV. Now, I will say that it was up loud, but was it loud enough to emanate through the trailer and across the campsite into their van? I had my doubts, but I complied and turned down the volume.

*The next morning I turned the TV volume to the same level of loudness as last night and walked over to the next campsite (they had left). I wanted to see if the noise was disrupting. I did not hear the TV, or at the most it was very faint. Add to that, being inside a van, and I think the sound was inaudible, unless you had hyper-hearing

What irritated me about this encounter, I had met the woman earlier when checking in with her partner, and the impression I had just by listening to what they said, and the questions that they were asking, was that these two were of the kind that liked to play the victim card. Something doesn’t go their way? It’s because of this, or because of that. Poor me, I’m a victim, everyone’s against me.

Now, I know I’m looking at them from within the boundary’s of a Stereotype, and I considered that heavily when forming my impression. Maybe I’m wrong and maybe, it just doesn’t really matter. It just kind of irked me, bringing me into her sphere of life, leave me out of it!

Tomorrow is only forecast to get up into the mid 60’s, which is 20 degrees colder than what I’ve gotten used to. At least it’s supposed to be sunny, so like the alligators and crocodiles, I’ll just find a place in the sun, and let it warm my body.

It’s supposed to get down into the low 40’s tonight. After a couple weeks where the lows didn’t dip much below 70, that’s a major difference. I’ll be getting the space heater out of storage and turning it on tonight.
